About CJ: "I’m a ceramic artist and adjunct professor at McHenry County College"
Do you collect handmade pottery? "I have been gathering a family of pottery for years. It is everywhere!"
Why do you buy handmade pottery? "I love the essence of the creator in each piece. It never fails to amaze me that we all use the same materials and come up with totally unique interpretations. I prefer the touch of handmade and enjoy good food, so I believe that it deserves a good “frame” to be set in."
How did you acquire a Lisa York piece of pottery? "I was fortunate to meet Lisa and purchase a lovely piece from her at an NCECA room show."
